The Consortium on the Revolutionary Era, 1750-1850 (CRE) provides a venue for the presentation of original research on the history of Europe, the Atlantic World and beyond. We welcome proposals from allied disciplines and comparative studies; in short, we offer a platform for research into the revolutionary era broadly defined.
The 2018 conference will be held February 22-24 at The Hilton Penn’s Landing Hotel located on the Philadelphia Waterfront. The conference venues are within easy walking distance of Philadelphia’s historic district, Independence Hall, the Constitution Center, numerous other museums, and many exceptional restaurants.
Featured speakers for the 2018 conference include: Simon Bainbridge, Professor of English Literature, Lancaster University; Billy Smith, Professor of History, Montana State University; and Erica Armstrong Dunbar, Professor of Black American Studies and History, University of Delaware.
The program committee prefers proposals for complete sessions (three papers, plus chair and a commentator). However, we will accept proposals for incomplete sessions and individual paper proposals. Session proposals should include name of presenter, title of paper, and brief abstract (no more than one page) for each paper; and brief CVs (no more than 2 pages) for each participant. The deadline for proposals is October 20, 2017. We welcome traditional presentations of new research as well as roundtable discussions and pedagogical panels. Proposals from doctoral students are welcome. Electronic submissions should be sent in Word or pdf format.
